I wonder what we will think
When we look back at these unusual times
Days of physical isolation
Working from home
Worries and fears
What will we take away from this experience?
Will we be wiser?
Will we be less materialistic?
Will we be more thankful for all that we have?
Will we have made new friends and connections?
Will our priorities have changed?
When the ground is plowed
The harvest is bountiful
The longer the stew simmers
The more delicious it is
Difficulties need to be followed by insight
Otherwise suffering is wasted time

“Separation brings with it burning grief”
The loss of a loved one
A friend moving away
One’s children moving out
These things can cause us immense sadness
This is the way of our world
This is how we see things
If we think of physical separation
In the world of the spirit, though
We are close
We never leave one another
I will focus on our spiritual reality
When I feel sad about the loss of a friend
Or their moving away
We are always close in spirit
Separation has no meaning

When assumptions I’ve held for a while
When the veil falls off
And what’s underneath is clear to see
It causes a little earthquake inside me
I have to recalibrate my understanding
The aftershocks come as well
It takes a while before all is quiet again
But of course the shape of the landscape has irreversibly changed
